Motion for New Election in Florida Dismissed

Thursday, 09 November 2000 12:00 AM

According to officials with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the affirmative injunction that sought the new election was dismissed at the request of the plaintiff, Milton Miller, a registered voter in Palm Beach County.

The federal case is unrelated to a pair of lawsuits filed in the Palm Beach County Circuit Civil Court, which also seek new elections based on alleged confusion over the ballots used in Tuesday's election.

The federal court action comes as election officials in Florida continue a recount of Tuesday's voting, which showed Texas Gov. George W. Bush beating Vice President Al Gore for the state's 25 electoral votes. The outcome of the Florida race will determine who becomes the next president.

State law ordered the recount in Florida because the margin of victory was so slim. Bush outpolled Gore by fewer than 2,000 votes out of nearly 6,000,000 cast.
